Electric is the future. All your glow engines and accessories will go in trash(obsolete) pretty soon. switch before its too late.

Thanks for the advice crazy pilot. I would trash my ic engines the day Aviation industry starts using electric powered, aircrafts to transport people (and yes I am aware of one off experimental electric powered aircrafts).
I do not think I would need to trash my IC engines in my lifetime atleast. The next generation may pick thier choices though.

I think CrazyPilot's point (put in milder terms Grin ) is that nitro engines may slowly suffer the fate similar to what happened to Mhz radios when 2.4Ghz became common. 

But for the 25% of people who fly .90 size or higher, conversion to electric will take a long long time (especially on the 50cc and higher ranges).  And that conversion would never be complete (or near-complete).

as long as it is a motor interest nitro will still b there,no matter how good and cheep batteries get,after all we are hobbyist and the grate thing is that we like different things

i like electric not only because it is superior in performance, more for me a practical thing and travel alot and in eu i can not just go and fly at a field   with a glow heli, then i get busted and get a grate fine. i would like to have a nitro as a former top fuel mechanic but i cant stand the noise of nitro model engines
but i can c new BIG helis that is coming with not even a option of glow. it would just not work for competitive 3d flight
